I recently got a request for one of the clips from my SOULMAN “Neva Stop Diggin'” cd entitled “Smooth Shit”… so me being the benevolent Soulman that I am, I will hook you up with not only “Smooth Shit” but also the two preceeding clips on the CD, “EZ” and “Blazers”. I did this particular mix during the height of the DJ Shadow & Cut Chemist “Brainfreeze” funk 45 phenomenon, so I was REALLY going against the grain playing all these mellowed out easy listening-type records. But hey, that’s me… I can appreciate all kinds of schitt, from James Brown to James Last. I always felt that if I wasn’t playing some different stuff than what everybody else is playing then I’m not really doing my job. And this is why I could never be a real dj… I just can’t adhere to the adage “give the people what they want”. I’m just too damn selfish when it comes to music, I guess.
BTW, R.I.P. the Lancaster PA record show, where the above pic and most of the photos used in the “Neva Stop Diggin'” cd artwork were taken at. I used to come up at that spot back in the days before everybody knew about it. Caught some BIG records there for $1-$2 a pop, plus just a lot of weird small label releases. You will be missed, Lancaster PA record show.
